Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre 50/50 Cash Lottery

The CACAC is excited to announce their newest community initiative: the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre 50/50 Cash Lottery!

One lucky winner will walk away with up to $200,000 all while supporting the efforts of the Centre.

“Our 50/50 Cash Lottery is not only going to change the life of the winner, it is also going to change the lives of the many children and families that we support here in Central Alberta.

In just two years’ time we have supported more than 830 children and youth impacted by child abuse from 74 communities across the province.

It takes courage for a child to share their story of abuse, it also takes courage from the community to listen, believe and seek justice.

With the help of our courageous community – with your help, we can and will continue to support every vulnerable child that needs us.

Each ticket sold in our lottery helps give the chance of a brighter and healthier future.” Mark Jones, CACAC CEO
